-mails with jill kelley. she is the florida socialite who led the fbi to petraeus. steve handelsman is on capitol hill with more on this. >> thanks. good evening from capitol hill. coincidentally, general kelley is not in afghanistan tonight. he came here to washington for a hearing that was to be held tomorrow. it has been put off, day after tomorrow on, what allen still hope will be his promotion to a better job. instead, his reputation is being called into question. general john allen, u.s. commander in afghanistan, was on track to be nato commander until the disclosure that he is under investigation by the pentagon. jill kelley, a socialite in tampa and general allen allegedly exchanged e-mails and documents that were called inappropriate. allen insisted there was no affair. kelley's complaints that she was getting harassing e-mails led the fbi to paula broadwell and the affair between broadwell and general david petraeus. unlike petraeus who has admitted infidelity and resign as director of the cia, allen got a vote of confidence today from president obama. >> he has faith in general allen.
